Gassco, the company running the Norwegian gas infrastructure, transported 106.99 billion cubic meters of gas through the pipeline systems from Norway to Europe and the UK in 2019.

Despite a small decline from 114.2 billion cubic meters in 2018, the year ranked as one of the best ever for gas deliveries from the Norwegian continental shelf (NCS), the company said in its statement.

“Even in a year with a big rise in European imports of liquefied natural gas (LNG), Norway’s gas deliveries were well above the average for the past decade,” Frode Leversund, Gassco’s CEO said.

In addition, came extensive planned maintenance work on the NCS compared with 2018. High and stable Norwegian volumes ensure stable gas supplies for Europe.

The availability for the delivery of gas to the transport system in 2019 was more than 99 percent.

“That’s a solid result, and demonstrates good interaction from field to delivery points in Europe,” said Leversund.

Deliveries of natural gas liquids (NGL) and condensate from the process plants at Kårstø, Kollsnes (via Vestprosess) and Nyhamna totaled 10.1 million tonnes in 2019.
